Never did understand why you change how you carry . If you carry IWB when "walking " why not wear that same rig when driving . If its uncomfortable YOU NEED A NEW HOSTER .

I have 30 years of concealed carry with far to many 'road trips " between 8 and 14 hrs and wear the same way in the same position I do when working , walking or anything else . Handgun over the years have run from a firestar m40 to a small lite carry like a kahr TP40 to my p320c or lw commander 1911 in the same ole hybrid iwb with only a kydex body change for the last 14 of those years .

vafish YOU have Heard the argument that strong side IWB is difficult to draw when seated in a vehicle. Sounds like you have not tried it to see .

$up3r_Dad I don't carry behind my hip , never have !! 3:00 maybe 3:15 with a little forward cant . I can ease my shirt edge up over the seat belt so clearing my handgun is no harder to do than standing at the line on a range and with out any odd body movement . I also don't plan to shoot from my car or truck but when I am out side of it I want to keep everything as much as possible the same as possible to my normal carry habits . People do get sucker punched when out side of the vehicles when on the road so keep as much as possible the same .

Example but not gun related . For years I carried a large 4.5" two blade case pocket knife in my back pocket next to my wallet . It had a key ring thru the hole that was in the tail end on the knife and a 4 strand branded rawhide loop attached to the key ring ..

I got sucker punched in a bar one night and have no idea what I did for a few minutes after we got away from the bar . Buddy said when I got hit my head dropped a bit it stumbled two steps back and came up with my raw hide loop with a over head swing . Hit the sucker puncher on the side of the head and turned him off and hit one of his buddys some where around the neck area before friends on both side broke it up . I have no idea what happened only what friends said happened . That's a type of muscle memory and pure reaction you develop only with time and practice .

So long as the grip in at around a 3:00 3:15 position getting quick control of the grip is not hard to do .

Shoulder holsters require a cover garment . That's make you stand out in warm weather even makes you uncomfortable if driving for a long time and if the cover is a winter coat well you get uncomfortable quickly . Taking off is not an option with a shoulder holster and many times a thin lite cover like print the harness and butt of the grip . If you carry on your string side most of the time and you get punched _ don't assume it can't happen- and you are stunned from the strike your naturally going to reach for your pistol where it is carried the most and its not there !!

Also ranges with a RO don't allow you to do draw and fire drills often and a shoulder holster maybe NEVER so better have a place to practice that's private , even an airsoft version that can be used at home shooting at a blanket .

Other wise - be prepared , practice .
